    I found this may apply to you....

    This happens if there is a file named Autorun.inf in the drive's root directory. Right-click the drive and choose "open", look for this file Autorun.inf and delete it. Restart Windows.

    If your mapping to a directory to install an application I guess this could be true. Or someone could have copied an installation package there by mistake?

    Ok, all I can think of here is the computer may have a device thats not installed properly. This action some how triggers a the error response somehow(love MS!). It would seem to be drive related.

    Physically check the cables to all drives (cd, disk, hard dives etc). In computer management look at 'disk management. Also check the device manager for problems. I would also select the computer at the top of device manger then do action/scan for hardware changes.. see if anything comes up.

    Are you physically mapping a drive or running a script?
